2016 marked Andy Newell’s 15th year competing on the international stage. The veteran is known for unparalleled athleticism, sharp natural speed and an affection for skiing that lasts well beyond the last World Cup into the spring corn snow of his native Vermont. Newell has stood on three World Cup podiums, has appeared at three Olympics and been on seven World Championship teams. He trains with his longtime club at the Stratton Mountain School on the Stratton Mountain School Elite Team team. 

Newell’s best result of the 2015-16 season was his fourth place finish in a World Cup classic sprint in Ruka, Finland—his best World Cup result since 2013.

Newell was skiing by three, racing by five and hasn't stopped since. After moving through Stratton Mountain School and its well-respected cross country program, he was top 10 in the sprint at Junior Worlds for three straight years (2001-03). He won his first Continental Cup race, a sprint, at Silver Star, BC, in November 2001 and moved on to clinch a team spot at his first Olympics.

Newell loves surfing, playing guitar and singing. He also stays involved in environmental organizations like Protect Our Winters and encourages other athletes to be proactive about climate change activism.
